The Top Ten Most Underrated Cartoons

1 Code Lyoko Code Lyoko is a French animated television series created by Thomas Romain and Tania Palumbo and produced by Moonscoop.

Code Lyoko is a diamond in the rough. A brilliantly written, clever show which got overlooked. The show is surprising really dark for a kids show. The characters are three dimensional and very likeable. It has one of the best villains I've seen in a kids show. It has a lot of back story and lore. The story of the protagonist (Aelita) is very sad and it really make emotional invested throughout the show. If you haven't seen it before I highly recommend it.

A Another Awesome Show Which People Hated Despite It Get Some Attention Recently By a Few People. - CaptainFalconGX4676

Code Lyoko easily has the most likeable characters out of any cartoon show

Why so much dislikes? It's the bomb!

2 Camp Lazlo Camp Lazlo is an American animated television series created by Joe Murray and produced by his company Joe Murray Productions with Cartoon Network Studios.

How does this only have 6.5 on IMDB? It's one of the best cartoons ever. - purpleyoshi98

I never understood why people underrate both of Joe Murray's cartoons. They're both great in my opinion

I Rember loving this show because an elephant was a main character. Good old times. I loved growing up, but however it had the worst series finale I ever scene. Other then that it was still a good show

It was actually sorta good - Goatworlds

3 Harvey Beaks Harvey Beaks is an American animated television series created by C.H. Greenblatt for Nickelodeon. Originally announced to premiere on March 29, 2015, the series instead premiered on March 28, 2015 following the 2015 Kids' Choice Awards.

This show is much better than Chowder, and yet Nick refuses a DVD release? - KalloFox34

This show made me so happy and me and my sister still quote "I cannot wink."

Not underrated. Not bad for sure but many people remember it exists so yeah. - PageEmperor

A serene cartoon that really deserves more credit (look at the creativity in it's characters) - Masochismismagic

4 ChalkZone ChalkZone is an American animated television series created by Bill Burnett and Larry Huber for Nickelodeon.

Actually a good show, but not better than the Fairly OddParents. - KalloFox34

Most forgotten and underrated show of all time.

It has unique animation and likable characters - UnderratedEpisodeAdvocate

Loved it

5 Catscratch Catscratch is an American animated television series created by Doug TenNapel (also known for creating Earthworm Jim). It was aired on both Nickelodeon and Nicktoons on July 9, 2005 and ended February 10, 2007. It is an adaptation of TenNapel's graphic novel, Gear, which is also the name of the cats' more.

This show was one of Nick's best shows and it needs to come back

Nickelodeon has announced reboots of Rugrats and Rocko's Modern Life in the form of comics (kind of like what they did with Invader Zim). Can this show be next?

This was an awesome cartoon which mostly felt like the Nick version of Ed,Edd n Eddy.It lasted for only 2 years (Should have lasted for 5 or 6,I mean,About 90% of bad Nick shows lasted a year longer than this! ) and only 1 season throughout it's whole entire run.Nickelodeon and many of it's fans forget about this cartoon and never give it the love and attention it deserves.This deserves to be #1 and Making Fiends should be #2,The things above deserve to be #3 or #4.I mean,This is the true definition of underrated and is truly forgotten when somebody mentions the words "Cancelled Nick Shows"

This show was one of my favorites as a young one! It reminded me of a zanier Aristocats with amazing characters such as Waffle. God I love Waffle - Masochismismagic

6 Danny Phantom Danny Phantom is an American animated series created by Butch Hartman for Nickelodeon. It was produced by Billionfold Studios and distributed in Canada by Nelvana, a Canadian animation company. The series follows a teenage boy who, after an accident with an unpredictable portal between the human world more.

This is an awesome show, the characters are complex and the storyline is original. Not to mention the animation is great and the comedy is hilarious. (Example: Tucker: "Ember isn't just music. She's an expression of my unique individuality! -camera shows everyone else in the school wearing Ember merchandise- Sam: Oh yeah... You're one of a kind! Every single one of you... /sarcasm)

This was a amazing show and a instant classic still remember the theme song

In my opinion, Danny Phantom is a greater show than Spongebob. It had relatable, three-dimensional characters, unique (and cocky) villains, story lines that put both drama, seriousness, and comedy...
And creating an interesting world called the Ghost Zone, this has a whole path wide open for it... if Nickelodeon would allow it to happen!

This is overrated

7 Buzz Lightyear of Star Command Buzz Lightyear of Star Command is an American animated science fiction/adventure/comedy series produced by Walt Disney Television Animation.

We always wanted to know what Buzz's fictional adventures were like, and now we got it - UnderratedEpisodeAdvocate

This show was awesome and it was hilarious how it was basically a spoof of Saturday morning Cartoons of the 80s

8 W.I.T.C.H. W.I.T.C.H. is a French-Italian-American animated television series based on the Italian comic book series of the same name.

Oh Yeah, This Show is Awesome, It Got Things That Most Modern Cartoon Don't Have:Great Characters, Epic Storytelling, Nice Voice Acting, Amazing Characters ETC. Yet, This Show is Really Overlooked By My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic (It is Still Great Modern Cartoon Through) - CaptainFalconGX4676

Love this underrated show.

Based on the American comic strip, Garfield, the series is executive produced by Garfield creator, Jim Davis, and co-written and voice directed by Mark Evanier, who also wrote most of the episodes for the Garfield and Friends series.

This is a good cartoon, so is the original and the comic they began with, the live action films though, they are travesties! - NickXH

This cartoon is great why everyone hates this - XtheXlmao

I prefer the live action movie over this

Jacksfilms approves

10 Hi Hi Puffy AmiYumi Hi Hi Puffy AmiYumi is an American-Japanese animated fantasy-comedy television series created by Sam Register for Cartoon Network.

The Best Cartoon Network Show That Needs Some Love and Attention By Boys Because Many Boys Are Too Busy Watching My Little Pony:Friendship is Magic. - CaptainFalconGX4676

We're the kids in America! - UnderratedEpisodeAdvocate

The Contenders

11 Dilbert

I remember this from Sky One but sadly I forgot about it.

Get this higher than Back at the Barnyard and in the Top 5 next to Harvey Beaks!

This was one of UPN's greatest shows! It's based off the 1989 comic of the same name. The show has a great voice cast, animation is acceptionally well, & I honesty like!

The Elebits of adult cartoons!

12 El Tigre: The Adventures of Manny Rivera

Amazing fight sequences, adorable animation/art style and interesting characters as well as Mexican culture being a huge theme. Its by the same guy who made Book of Life, why is it so low on the list?

This deserves more love. It’s one of my favorites.

13 The Amazing World Of Gumball The Amazing World of Gumball is a British-Australian-German-American-Irish children's animated television series created by Ben Bocquelet for Cartoon Network.

To all the ass who hate this show you. This cartoon is one of the best some of you whiners say otherwise this is one of the most creative shows in history the only reason you think it sucks is because your brain is to small that you can't comprehend the genius of it and must settle for stuff like teen titans go, modern SpongeBob, and family guy. So take your opinions and die with them. But seriously folks this is still a perfect show that gets a lot of disrespect. I guess we live in a time when people are afraid of something new and original. So in conclusion this is one of the best shows of all time and needs more respect from peop le. a nd to people like swampyfan who hate this show, you disgust me all

THIS IS SO UNDErrated! EVEN HERE! It's overshadowed a lot... It isn't fair that such an awesome show is underrated.

Just because it's bad does not mean it's overrated...

Very underrated. It just gets overshadowed by other great Cartoon Network shows like Adventure Time and Regular Show.

14 Beverly Hills Teens
15 Kappa Mikey Kappa Mikey is an American animated sitcom created by Larry Schwarz. The show is Nicktoons Network's first original half-hour series, bought during the same period as other Animation Collective series such as Three Delivery and Speed Racer: The Next Generation, as well as Flash shows from other studios, more.

This show was so hilarious! It made fun of many popular anime such as Speed Racer, Dragon Ball, Sailor Moon, etc. But also pays great homage to them as well. The concept of having an American cartoon character in a Japanese anime world was so clever! Not to mention the voice of Gonard is Sean Schemmel! The voice of Goku and Lucario! What more could you want? Apart from that, the characters are funny and lovable, the stories can appeal to kids and sometimes even adults, what's else to say? This series should've lasted a lot longer and it's just sad that it got cancelled. Highly recommend you watch it on KissCartoon.

The Two Funniest Shows Ever From Nicktoons Network and Disney That People Should Watch More and More. - CaptainFalconGX4676

Isn't the first version before Gumball is created?

Why is it cancelled?

16 Fanboy & ChumChum

How Did This Show Ever Get On The List? It Sucks So Hard Don't Believe Me? Look It Up On Google And See How Many People Hate This Disgraceful Cartoon.

This show actually isn't as bad as most people make it out to be, but I still don't really like it. Lenny, the guy who owns the store, is actually a pretty relatable character though

No one likes this show except for Nickelodeon

Maybe its underrated because ChumChum is a weird name and only had two seasons.

17 Star Wars: The Clone Wars Star Wars: The Clone Wars is an American 3D CGI animated television series created by George Lucas and produced by Lucasfilm Animation with the division Lucasfilm Animation Singapore, Lucasfilm and CGCG Inc.

I love this show so much! Even though anakin seems mean to ahsoka.
Its like the only show I watch next to doctor who, and mysteries at the museum.
By the way I'm 10 using my moms email.

The entire Clone Wars merchandise are spearheaded by Buena Vista. - playstationfan66

If we're talking about the 2003 miniseries then, yes, underrated. if not...shoot oop mun - ALL_HAIL_LELOUCH


18 Little Bill Little Bill is an American animated children's television series produced for Nick Jr. The stories are based on Bill Cosby's Little Bill book series, set in Philadelphia, and feature Bill Jr.

This show is actually a good choice if you are 5 years old

Caillou's African Friend. - XtheXlmao

me too.

Black Cailou

19 Tom and Jerry Tales Tom and Jerry Tales is an American animated television series starring the Academy Award-winning cat-and-mouse duo Tom and Jerry.

The 2014 is more underrated because of more hurts to Tom and Jerry is annoying as ever plus laughing at tom with jerry is not funny through (at least the laughing tracks are better in other sitcomes except some boring T.V. sitcomes) then the Season 2 is actually not bad...and improved overall and Jerry is not annoying as ever anymore but the best episode in season 1 when Tom beats the dog by doing evil stuff styles but the best episode in 2014 but still I hate the year 2014.

20 My Life As a Teenage Robot My Life as a Teenage Robot is an American animated science fantasy television series created by Rob Renzetti for Nickelodeon.

I believe the only reason why this show isn't appreciated as much is because Nickelodeon was too greedy because of the shows poor ratings. This show rocked! It had great humor, loveable characters, and an interesting premise. If you have the time to watch three seasons of a show that deserves more attention, watch My Life as a Teenage Robot. You won't regret it.

The art style is cute and I remember loving this show as a little kid. The animation isn't as great as some other shows but it's definitely classic.

I love this show! - Gangem

No it's overrated liars lmao - XtheXlmao

21 Be Cool, Scooby-Doo!

Not as good as it's predecessor but it has some memorable jokes from Daphne (Who is the comic relief in this show) all the voice actors from Inc. voice the characters in these, except for Velma. - MistyMay113

Sure, the animation isn't the best. But the comedy is hilarious. - TheStormBolt

Scooby doo is among my least favorite cartoons. Just so uninteresting, tedious, and boring. No jokes hit, every episode has the same ending, only occasionally thought-provoking, and forgettable. I only remember one character. People only like it because they liked it when they were younger, along with me but I had a small taste in cartoons. There are just so many better cartoons: adventure time, spongebob, teen titans, and countless others. I’d rate it a 6/10. I consider it the second most overrated cartoon of all time.

22 Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated

People don't give this show a chance... you should check it out, both seasons are on Netflix at the moment. - MistyMay113

I like how it had an on going plot that developed with each episode.

The most underrated Scooby Doo incarnation and by far one if the best with a damn good albeit odd villian to boot - Masochismismagic

23 Spider Riders
24 Robot and Monster

I'm surprised that I actually remember this show! I used to love it when it was on. - Target

Overrated if you ask me. - Goatworlds

Far better than Sonic boom.

This show was my childhood - Haumea

25 Making Fiends Making Fiends is an American comedy horror animated television series. Based upon a web series with the same name, the series ran from October 4, 2008 to November 1, 2008 on Nicktoons Network.

If your show only had 6 episodes produced and was pushed to a less popular network, then it has a 99.99% chance of being underrated. - Target

The 2nd best Nick show of all time

26 Liberty's Kids

I loved the theme song

27 Mucha Lucha ¡Mucha Lucha! is an American animated television series created by Eddie Mort and Lili Chin for Kids' WB.

What the hell is this - XtheXlmao

Amazing show,why's it so low.

28 Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H.
29 Wander Over Yonder Wander Over Yonder is an American animated television series on Disney XD. Created by Craig McCracken, it follows Wander and his best friend and steed Sylvia. Adventurous and optimistic, Wander rides across the galaxy to help persons live freely, against the intentions of Lord Hater to rule the universe. more.

I LOVE this show it is funny and beautifull, and Wander is such a great main character. - Margarida

Actually a really good show. The visuals are nice, a lot of episodes have tons of humor, many likeable characters and an interesting concept. Up there amongst my favourite modern cartoons, I watch it every time I don't feel like watching my other favourites. - PageEmperor

Thought I would hate this show and took a long time to give it a chance. I am glad I did as this turned out to be one of my favourite shows of all time. Great music and Wander is the most adorable orange spoon ever! - FloofyDoof

One of the better shows of Disney channel, one of my favorites at least, it's sad that it done now

30 Lego Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitzu

For a show that is so great and has gone on for this long (and is still going), it’s definitely underrated.

Most Underrated Cartoon od all time

This cartoon is great

Underrated as hell

31 Kirby: Right Back at Ya! Kirby: Right Back at Ya!, known in Japan as Hoshi no Kirby, is a Japanese anime series created by Warpstar, Inc.

WHo Is kIrbY? - XtheXlmao

32 Grojband Grojband is a Canadian animated series developed by Fresh TV and distributed by FremantleMedia, Ltd and created by Todd Kauffman and Mark Thornton. more.

First time seeing this and only ''gangsta'' 's watch this cartoon. - XtheXlmao

Grojband was alright. It wasn't Spongebob amazing, but deserved more attention. - SneakedPrism

33 Back at the Barnyard Back at the Barnyard is a Nickelodeon computer-animated television series that is a spin-off from the 2006 film, Barnyard.

How did this cartoon get so much hate? I thought it was hilarious! There is some really funny stuff in this show I'm really glad I saw, such as the pig segments. The plots I actually found to be enjoyable, and the CGI looks far superior compared to Fanboy & Chum Chum and Planet Sheen. It may have some errors, but I'm overall glad I saw it, and I look forward to watching it again someday. Definitely deserves a lot more attention in my opinion..

This cartoon needs more love, sure the plots and villains can use some work, but still can make me laugh

I remember this show! But only the ghost rabbit episode

I loved this show when I was younger but looking back it's not as appealing to older audiences, but it's still a funny and enjoyable show in my eyes. - Disneykid00

34 Robotboy

Robotboy is so underrated. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Childhood ;_; Probably 2nd best action cartoon after Teen Titans.

The robot is really cute, but once you piss it off, it becomes an absolute death machine. - IceFoxPlayz


35 Tara Duncan: The Evil Empress
36 Loonatics Unleashed

Yes! This Show Is Totally Underrated. I Don't Know Why Everyone Hates It.

Awesome underrated show from the good days

NikBrusk you Mr. Enter is awesome. Lunatics unleashed is a shameless cash grab of the looney tunes, why there's even video proof of someone showing sketches of the characters to a boy, and he said it just made them look evil, you know a show sucks when a kid points out the flaws, of and hey people like rebeltaxi hate it too should we screw him too?

37 Garfield and Friends Garfield and Friends is an American animated television series based on the comic strip Garfield by Jim Davis.

One of the few 80s cartoons to be clever instead of merchandise driven. - KalloFox34

I honestly think that everyone forgot about this show. It may be old but that doesn't mean it's all garbage, if only more people knew about this...

This is my fifth all-time favorite cartoon series and I think it should number one on this list.

38 Maya and Miguel

I remember this cartoon too but it's weird as
hell - XtheXlmao

39 The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show

Great cartoon. Rocky is so cute and Bullwinkle is so funny. I've always found Boris and Natasha annoying.

40 American Dragon: Jake Long American Dragon: Jake Long is an American animated television series. It was produced by Walt Disney Television Animation and created by Jeff Goode.

Sorry. I'm not american. by the way they changed the name to ''Young Dragon'' in my language lol - XtheXlmao

Best show of my childhood. No really it was! I just thought it was just cool as a kid. I mean a dude that can turn into a dragon, now that’s interesting. Not only did it have tons of action, but it was also relatable at times which got me entertained. However, I’ve always felt that it was a bit forgotten. I barely see anyone bring it up and when it is brought up people are like ‘eh it’s just okay’ or ‘eh it used to be fine but became bad’.

I personally prefer the first season over the second one. Of course the second season wasn’t bad, like I said earlier many people didn’t like it but I personally thought it was fine. It’s just that I preferred, well all the character’s original designs to the redesigns. At first I was unsure about the dragon since I didn’t see any difference as a kid but now I’ve decided the buff dragon from season 1 had more personality.

Overall, I think this was an amazing show, both in terms of nostalgia and as the show ...more - PageEmperor

A funny series that teaches kids about history - UnderratedEpisodeAdvocate

45 Ōban Star-Racers

The most underrated anime-inspired cartoon of all time. Amazing animation, engaging stories, and tearjerking moments... - UnderratedEpisodeAdvocate

46 Sabrina: The Animated Series
47 Brandy and Mr. Whiskers

I HATE this cartoon so much! It’s annoying, arrogant, racist, demeaning, offensive, and totally stupid. The only reason why they kept this stupid show on for so long is because Russell Marcus was arrogant and he thought 💭 he did a good job 👍. It has horrible episodes, terrible animation, an unrealistic plot and irritating 😠 characters! Brandy Harrington is extremely annoying and she is a total jerk and a spoiled brat. Mr. Whiskers is an idiot as well. Margo is a spoiled bratty ho. Ed is so dumb. I can’t stand Lola Boa for every reason. Everyone else is D-U-M-B! And Cheryl and Meryl, Ugh 😑! This annoying cartoon shouldn’t have stayed on so long because it was extremely stupid. I give it 0/10 ⭐️ and I hate it and Russel Marcus needed to get a life

48 Sheep In the Big City

A funny gem from Cartoon Network's golden age - UnderratedEpisodeAdvocate

49 Cybersix

While some of the voice acting isn't the best, this show is an absolute hidden gem. Too bad it never lasted long.
